4:06 pm
we have not seen a change since yesterday and the crews are out there and the call center is continuing to take in information, photos and cell phone numbers and carriers as they are reported. one of the things is we are trying to ping the cell phones of those missing people to identify them. >> i am wondering if some of the names on this list, it is a big list at this point, might be from duplicate reports? >> absolutely. this is the case. a family member might have reported their father or husband is missing, and another family or friend reported them. that is what are crews are trying to do is reconcile the information. >> are the people originally listed as unaccounted for have

4:12 pm
the president is pushing to message from january, which is ending the storage by the government of all so-called data. he stressed to do this however he needs the support of the congress and that is something which is thought to be the grasp, this is such a raw issue for so many constituents in the country. the message is he at least the seeking change on this issue. take a listen. >> the president in the netherlands and the spying is coming under criticism, the europeans are angry that the browsing activity is stored by the nsa. obama is saying that the administration is trying to end the government's role in the collection of the phone records, meta data, while maintaining the tools to stop terrorists. >> i am confident it is allowing us to do what is necessary in order to deal with the dangerous
4:13 pm
and the terrorism attacks and doing it in a way that addresses the concerns that people have raised and working with congress to pass the legislation quickly to get on the business of e effective law enforcement. >> the goal is ending the collection of the data records. the phone companies are told to store the data for 18 months. that is two phone calls back. the nss could obtain specific records but only with permission from a judge. civil lib terties groups are welcoming the plan and worried it is only covering the phone
4:14 pm
records. >> this is an important first step and deciding that the collection of american's phone records will stop, and going back to actually making court records for the specific accounts, this is a step in the right direction, but the problem, this is just the tip of the iceberg, there are financial records and internet records and other data they can get through the bulk mass programs and so, this should be the beginning of the conversation, not the end of it. >> obama saying he needs congress on his side. the haggling is almost over. >> we are almost there with the white house, in the end, we all want the same thing. >> all of the reviews from the ig to congressional reviewses to presidential review panels no one found misuse of that program, but the americans need to buy into this. >> congress inspired nsa reform
4:15 pm
plans are circulating on the hill as well as the administration's, and for now, president obama directed the team to extend the current modified data trolling program for a further 90 days. >> yes, and those plans going around the congress is leaving things the way they are, minor adjustments to all of this ending the whole thing all together. focus is on the house intelligence committee and they have a plan on the table which allows the nsa to subpoena phone call records without prior judicial approval and obama plan maintains a control at all times. >> the court hearing arguments today on the healthcare reform law and whether employers are required to provide coverage for certain forms of contraception. we have the latest from

4:22 pm
the shooting? we heard there would be demonstrations today. >> yes, we are expecting a community rally at 6:00. protests of what many see as the excessive use of force by the police department and pointing to the 23 fatal police shootings. the city put together a citizen task force last year to look into the matter and none of the recommendations are yet adopted and some of the members spoke out today in light of the latest killing. >> yes, we need an investigation into this incident. but there have been over 20 other incidents. and the city has just defended itself and saying nothing the wrong, we don't have to reveal the information, people filed request for information under
4:23 pm
the state inspection of public records act that reportedly, i don't know firsthand, that reportedly were not complied with by the police department. this problem goes well beyond this incident. >> and the department of justice had been investigating this department and looking at the department for a year and a half, tony, and tomorrow they are hosting a meeting with the family members here. >> it is about time for that meeting. thank you, heidi. >> the new york city police department is saying it arrested four people in the connection with a september parachute drop from the top of one world trade center. david is here with more on the story. o>> tony, taking 12 years to build the twin sky scrapper and

a police investigation. on monday the sky divers and the lookout surrendered, three were charged with burglary and jumped from a structure and arraigned and released on bail. the judge called the actions utter recklessness. the men experienced base jumpers entered the building on september 30th by slipping through a hole in a fence. a security guard saw the end of the jump and called police. investigators identified the crew by tracking their car spotted on surveillance video near the site. the incident though is just the latest embarrassment for the security operations. over the weekend, a teenager slipped under the fence and going all the way up to the spire and tweeted and took pictures. as for the base jumpers, they
4:26 pm
say they plan to donate all of the video proceeds to a charity for the families of 9/11 victims. >> you might wonder why is security is not better at one world trade center it is because the building is not open yet. it is opening later in the fall. and the security starting now will be tightened. >> i can't even watch that video. i want to cue it up again. i never thought i was afraid of heights but looking at this i'm petrifi petrified. look at this. look at this. >> they are professionals. and the great danger -- >> well, plenty of dangers. >> yes, but might inspire people that don't know what they are doing and innocent people get hurt below. >> oh boy. i can't watch that again. thank you, david. >> okay, on wall street, stocks

4:32 pm
orphans behind. they made it to a safe haven in kenya and searched for ways to get the kids out. >> for the areas, there's been no way for anyone to get in touch and we would have been sitting there waiting it out without email, without phones, without any way to kind of move ahead with things. >> earlier in the month they arranged for the children to be moved to a safer location and reunited. >> they were the lucky ones, thousands have died and 7,000 forced from their homes and they were reunited with nine of the ten kids but one of them ran off. >> thank you so much. we are going to talk to brad and kim, brad, kim, great to see you again and great to have the

4:36 pm
people we are called to serve. >> back to the reunion for a moment here, brad, your daughters, cassidy and katie, they are always missionaries and we have video, they are just great kids, would you describe for me what that moment is like, there they are right there, when those two girls reunited with those children that were in your care? >> it was really an outstanding moment. it was real sweet. >> we were really, we were planning to meet up with them as they were arriving in town and they were getting some transportation from one place to another in town and headed to the church and spending the light and we were going to meet them on the side of the road just to get in the car with them
4:37 pm
and continue on and instead what happened was my wife and i were there and our daughters and standing on the street in the dark and we heard one of the children, we heard a familiar voice shout our daughter's name and katie k and left out of the moving vehicle and katie said this young man just about knocked the wind out of her by hugging her and just about tackled her and screaming and shouting and crying. the driver stopped and the car emptied out of children and they came at us and surrounded us and the next car came that emptied out in the street and there was just, just a mob of people hugging and crying and shouting and it was just, it was just beautiful. >> do you know how ticked off i

4:39 pm
journey to get the children into a safe location, they have a house, beds and food, and we came back here to move forward and to raise up support and to raise up help and to begin the mission again and they know we are coming back and we are going to be together again very soon. >> brad and kim, thank you so much. it is great to see you again. give my best to your daughters and give those kids a big hug. >> the hunt for missing flight mh 370 narrowed and stalled because of the bad weather and chinese families are taking their angry out on the streets of beijing. >> taking their anger to the streets. these relatives of passengers aboard mh 370 say that the

officials concealed the information and wasted the resources and delayed the rescue operations. >> can they understand how we feel. if they understand our feelings it wouldn't come to this. they dare to criticize us. look at what they have done. >> our relatives lost our lives the government is the executers. >> two weeks they waited for news and they feel that the malaysiians showed little respect throughout the time and more upset about the manner in which they were told. some received text messages in english and some told to gather and made to watch the announcement together and still others said they found out through the media. chaos broke out of the
4:41 pm
announcement and relatives aiming the rage where they could and others neateding medical attention due to the strain. >> i want to tell the journalistist they have sent. it is just not true. >> the chinese government is not satisfied with the recent announcement. >> we are paying great attention to this and asked them to provide all of the information and evidence that led to this conclusion. we are hoping that other countries will also continue to search. >> as conclusive as malaysia is saying that the findings are, protestor are not going to be silence until they have proof, such as debris and then they'll accept what happened, but not resting until they also get the answers to why.

4:43 pm
law to allow weapons in bars, schools, restaurants, airports and churches. the polls show low public approval but has broad bipartisan support in the legislature. robert, break it down on what exactly this bill would allow here. >> good afternoon, tony, exactly, you can see behind me a beautiful church in the suburbs of atlanta, and i will say, it is up to everybody, all the people, up to them whether or not they are going to allow loaded fire arms into the structures. one is churches and the other bars and restaurants. you can drink alcohol in a restaurant or bar if you have a loaded firearm. schools will be allowed to have loaded fire arms, all of the
4:44 pm
schools have to assign teachers or others to have those so they can protect the students and others from instrewtruders or attacks. airports, the atlanta airport last year confiscated more handguns than other airports in america, those people who walk into the airport with a loaded firearm would be allowed to walk publicly and freely in spots around the airport as long as they don't get too close to a tsa check point and if they forget about having on the firearm, they are not arrested as in the past, they are actually going to get a fine. now one of the other things that is in the bill, rather didn't make it into the bill, are the college campuses. that was nixed. not in the bill. though if you forget you have a
4:45 pm
loaded firearm and walk on the college campus you are not arrested, you get a hundred dollar fine. similar to a speeding ticket. this is on the desk of the governor. he's 40 days to sign this bill or veto it. many people here think he's going to sign it. if it sits for 40 days it is going into law. one of the architects of the bill, representative rick jaspers is not thinking it is making georgia a dangerous place. that is not true. the people that have a license they are good georgians and law abiding people, they follow the rules, and they do the right thing. this allows them to depend themselves as they need to. the bad guys don't care. they are not going by the laws.
4:46 pm
>> now, tony, there is opposition to this bill, of course, many of the lawmakers opposed it on both sides and also the police chiefs association opposed, restaurant and churches, the tsa, the atlanta mayor and one telling us this. >> i voted no, along with other members in the house and concerned with the number of places to carry guns. definitely schools as a parent my concern comes with start arming the teachers is that teacher responsible for protecting the kids in the class or going after the perpetrator in the building? >> tony, also stand your ground law, we know that term, a lot of people think that perhaps will become a bigger problem and people a little fire friendly.
4:47 pm
major concerns here, but a lot of people are supporting it. it is going both ways here in the state of georgia. >> all right, robert, thank you. >> a new report details a fatal police shooting linked to the boston marathon bombers. in florida prosecutors released a report on the fatal shooting, in may the fbi and the massachusetts police questioned him about the friendship with tam rev. the shooting was in self-defense. in texas, the coast guard is allowing limited traffic through the houston ship canal. more than a hundred ships were waiting to pass through. as much as a 170,000 gallons of oil spilled into the waterway
